She also leaves to mourn her loving sister Pauline Braconnier (Ray); her sister-in-law Josiane Piette, as well as many dear cousins, nieces, and nephews in Canada and Belgium.
Mom worked at the Taché Centre as the receptionist in the 1970s before taking a leap of Hotelier in La Broquerie and Portage la Prairie. Later on in life she became the cook for the Saint-Boniface and Précieux-Sang Parishes.

  • God saw you getting tired, And a cure was not to be. So He wrapped you in His loving arms And whispered, "Come with Me." You suffered much in silence Your spirit did not bend You faced your pain with courage Until the very end. You tried so hard to stay with us Your fight was not in vain God took you in His loving arms And saved you from all the pain.
